Re: windscreen leaking

What type of car do you own? you may be able to fix it yourself.

Re: windscreen leaking

Get the screen resealed via a windscreen replacement mob. Problem is they'll probably break the screen removing it. I got mine out myself without breaking it.

Re: windscreen leaking

The 2 side moulds are screwd on the inside pillars. To remove bottom mould take off the wiper mounted on the cowl panel air vent cover then remove the 8 screws holding the cowl panel cover and remove that. Thare ar a few screws in the middle holding the moulding on the ends there are some metal clips which you need a L shaped clip removing tool (under $5 buks from auto shop) slide that under 1 clip at a time while lifting the moulding. The top moulding is held on with the same metal clips.Sounds hard to do but its not. And the 4 corner mouldings just slide off with the 2 side mouldings. Put every thing back on in reverse order.
